Cupcakes for the Cure
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as a result, many cupcake shops sell special, limited-edition cupcakes that help raise money for the fight against breast cancer. Here are a couple of places to help you decide where to pick up your Pink Ribbon cupcakes.
For every Pink Ribbon Cupcake purchased at any Magnolia Bakery location throughout the month of October, Magnolia Bakery will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Magnolia Bakery launched this cupcake for the cure in 2008. For the first time this year, these Pink Ribbon Cupcakes are available on the Magnolia Bakery online store.
Georgetown Cupcake is the proud sponsor of the 2012 Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure. In addition, Georgetown Cupcake will donate 100 percent of the purchasing price of its special pink-themed cupcake to Susan G. Koman for the Cure. These cupcakes are available by pre-order, walk-in purchase, and national shipping until Oct. 31, 2012. Since Georgetown Cupcakes introduced the cupcakes in 2012, it has raised more than $150,000 to support breast cancer research and awareness.
Sprinkles Cupcakes donates the proceeds from its Pink Ribbon cupcake to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund. Sprinkles offers a strawberry cupcake with a pink sugar ribbon as their Pink Ribbon Cupcake. All of the proceeds from each charitable cupcake are donated. Since 2005, Sprinkles has raised $168,000 for Women’s Cancer Project.
The donations from these cupcake places are helping to fund research for breast cancer and new technologies for breast cancer detection. So help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer by eating cupcakes — it doesn’t sound too hard!
